Uhm Tae-woong gets married
by | January 10, 2013 | 109 Comments

Finally! How freaking adorable is Uhm Tae-woong, aka Uhmforce, aka Uhmdorkable (okay I just made that up), pictured here with his bride for his wedding? He just looks so happy and excited and proud.

She’s Yoon Hye-jin, a ballerina Tae-woong met through the introduction of his noona Uhm Jung-hwa; he announced his wedding plans on a recent-ish episode of 1N2D. The wedding took place in Seoul yesterday, January 9, and was attended by a whole who’s who of drama and varietyland stars, including the whole cast of 1N2D (Ho-dong too, aw). Sung Shi-kyung sang the congratulatory song with songwriter Yoo Hee-yeol, who got roped into it agreed to the suggestion duringβ€”what else?β€”a guest stint on 1N2D.

I know people have been trying to marry him off practically since the day he stepped into the 1 Night 2 Days world, and his lonelyhearts bachelor persona has become something of a Thing with him. Ajummas and grandmas all over all want to hook him up with daughters and neighbors and random pretty girls they know. He cracks dumb jokes about romance and makes inanimate objects kiss. I recognize that some of that may be totally trumped up for entertainment value (because it’s so entertaining)… and yet, you see him being corny and sweet and totally romance-obsessed, and you just think it’s gotta be true: He really really really wants to be married.

So now that he is, it’s like we can all breathe a collective sigh and go home light-hearted, like we just married off our last little brother whom we’d been worried about for AGES, who’s finally met his match. In a good way.

    I am so happy for him! And those pictures are just freaking adorable πŸ™‚

    • 3.1 M.D.

      I totally adore the old, romantic look of the sepia. They look brighter than any colour pictures. The last one looks a bit too dramatic for a wedding picture. But it might be just me.

      • 3.1.1 xenni

        The last pic is actually my favorite!:))

  4. Carole McDonnell

    Korean wedding pics totally rock!

    • 4.1 himonogirl

      Oh YEAH…My top three:
      1. Jung Tae-woo x Jang In-hee
      2. Tablo x Kang Hye-jung
      3. Yoo Ji-tae x Kim Hyo-jin

      • 4.1.1 himonogirl

        And I forgot to melt into a puddle of rosy goo.
        Aw, DoggyFeet, you’ve found your mate! How much I’d like to see the wedding ceremony in 1n2d, just like they did for Su-geun…

  5. MsScorpion

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY, our bachelor is finally married.


    • 5.1 jikwana

      • 5.1.1 amareally

        Well…he can unless the married team stepped up the requirement to “the married with 2 kids” team hahaha! you know how absurd they can be…anyway, congrats Uhm Tae Woong, as a fan I couldn’t be happier πŸ™‚

        • naya_marie

          Aww, if they have a requirement like that, UTW would be alone!!!:(

    OMG! They look so cute! Uhm Tae-woong, I’m so happy for you! Congratulations! I know you’ll be an excellent husband and a wonderful father! May you have many long years of happiness!

  20. 20 Butet

    He’s not married. That’s just pictures from his latest drama.. ** Delusional**

    I thought she was pregnant? It sure doesn’t look like it. They do look happy as can be though.
    Congratulations! *Heart breaks a lil more*

    • 20.1 Annie

      Some people just don’t show until they are pretty far along – she’s only 3 months pregnant.

    • 20.2 Laeah

      I didn’t show until 6/7 months. Babies are very tiny for most of pregnancy!

      • 20.2.1 D

        yes, that’s true cos same case for me with both babies. I only have a football in the midsection to show. Not much spent on maternity wear

    • 20.3 ajuma

      Yeah he’s not married, this are just for promotional pics… *super delusional*

  21. 21 Laurita

    Adorable πŸ™‚

  22. 22 Arhhazivory

    So lovely. *sniffles* I’m stupidly happy for him. I hope they have a wonderful, long life together.

  23. 23 Ann

    So great! Next we get to watch him be a daddy!

  24. 24 afufu

    next up: sung si kyung

    • 24.1 hui ting

      I hope so! Hehe.

    • 24.2 Rashell

      Don’t let Javabeans read that. I don’t think she’s ready unless she’s the bride. πŸ˜‰

      • 24.2.1 javabeans

        Glad we got that clear. Wouldn’t want anybody to lose an eye.

        • R


          Thanks for the lovely pics !

        • Airyn

          So will SSK sing in his own wedding, I wonder? πŸ˜‰

        • ajuma

          Ha ha!! Lol!:)

  25. 25 maria

    theyre both shining with happiness! congrats to them!

  26. 26 boholAnna

    how many wedding dresses does she have? all are lovely though.

    nice couple πŸ™‚

  27. 27 MsB

    Absolutely gorgeous pictures! So happy my brother found his true love, finally!! Congrats to the both of them!!

  28. 28 JoAnne

    He’s got that universe-brightening JooWon smile going…so happy for them! What an adorable couple – and now we wait impatiently for the cute little fat baby pictures next year…although Song Il Gook’s triplets will be hard to beat. Hurray for Korea! indeed.

    • 28.1 kumi

      Out of question. Who would beat Song Il Gook’s triplets? Their father is such a sword-fighter! (Just joking) πŸ™‚

  29. 29 hui ting

    That is one ecstatic groom! I saw another set of photos (I think he was at the conference) and he’s really grinning from ear to ear. So happy for this good-looking couple.

    Hope this couple and their child (or maybe soon, children) will always be happy and healthy. πŸ™‚

  30. 30 jomo

    Awww he looks so happy.
    He’s gonna be one proud papa.

  31. 31 pumpkinattack

    So adorable! Yay! πŸ˜€

  32. 32 Kiara

    So happy for Uhm and its about damn time :).

  33. 33 canxi

    They look so good together! It’s like a match made in heaven with those smiles. *Squeep*

  34. 34 Farpavilions

    Out of curiosity, are shotgun weddings acceptable in Korea now or is the Uhmforce getting a pass just because he’s so awesome?

    Not judging, just curious given that in a kdrama the same situation would call for plenty of sturm und drang and weepy mothers and family shame yadayadayada, whereas everything is puppies and sunshine for UTW and really very scandal free given that he actually did knock her up. Which I’m just not understanding given how much fuss there was over that IU photo with that SuperJunior guy or Rain and Kim Tae Hee …

    • 34.1 thehaydn

      After a slew of shotgun weddings (too many to count), Korea’s probably not surprised anymore. (esp with celebrity weddings LOL)
      ehhh what can ya do? most will think they married bc of said baby in the womb, but they probably did think of marriage along the way if they went ALL THE WAY. LOL

    • 34.2 hui ting

      There are too many shotgun weddings. E.g. Well-loved Jang Dong-gun and Ko So-young, Tablo and Kang Hye-jung, Kwon Sang-woo and Son Tae-young…

      Lots of mixed reactions (read: http://netizenbuzz.blogspot.sg/2012/11/mixed-reactions-to-news-of-wedding.html) actually but some are just silly.. How is having sex dirty? Imo, I have no comments on shotgun marriages as long as the couple love each other and are happy.

      • 34.2.1 Ann

        I don’t really see this wedding as “shotgun,” since he has talked about how he has wanted to marry her for a long time. Personally, I think he wanted to have a baby and so they went ahead and got pregnant since they knew they were getting married. I imagine that they planned it long before he announced it. He seems to want to be very private just like most of those guys are.

        I think maybe Jong-Min might get married next. He is so protective of his girlfriend!

        • Annie

          Who is Kim Jong Min’s girlfriend?

          • thehaydn

            still a mystery… LOL but he refers to her as his “mom” on the show. hahahaha

        • seina miller

          That’s what i’m waiting for, for JM’s wedding!:)

    • 34.3 Laeah

      Honestly, I think they get pregnant so fans or family members can’t interfere.

      That and Korean men never seem to know what a condom is for. 😑

    • 34.4 canxi

      IU + Eunhyuk and Rain + Kim Tae Hee both involved idols, so I think it was a bunch of fangirls and fanboys getting their feather ruffled and general disdain for Rain who is getting in trouble for extensive vacation time from his mandatory service(?).

      I don’t mind a shot gun wedding either and I also think it’s generally none of anyone’s concern, lol (though it’s nice to hear about especially with a couple this adorable). I mean…I don’t care if you get pregnant before marrying as long as you love each other…that’s most important, right? They seem really happy, anyhow. It’s one of those things that’ll bother some more than others, lol.

      They’re both fully grown, I think they know what they are doing, haha.

  35. 35 dirtydrunkennoona

    What a cute couple! They look so in love.

  36. 36 whimsicalnet

    congratulations to the newly weds!!!

  37. 37 miss unknown

    awww~ they both look so happy!! Congrats to him!!!

  38. 38 bluemoon

    Aww….he’s beaming happily…..all the best UTW…..

    Now that that your sister got your married like she once stated, I think it’s time for her to get married too…..

    • 38.1 Annie

      I don’t think Uhm Jung Hwa is the marrying type – she’s always seemed so independent and unconventional; happy in her own skin basically.

  39. 39 Momos

    Is it coincidence or what? LSK’s wife name is Jeon Hye-jin n now UTW’s wifey Yoon Hye-jin.
    BFF got similarly named wifey? So uncanning.

  40. 40 Betsy

    Congrats to the happy couple! What a lucky girl, he is going to be a great husband and father. I also love how Uhm Tae Woong is smiling from ear-to-ear in these pics, you can tell he is so in love and he is totally Uhmdorkable too!

  41. 41 S a r a h

    Awww! I’m sure THIS is gonna be the topic of the next 1n2d episode!

    They look so good together. And so happy!

    • 41.1 naya_marie

      Will UTW be missing for a few eps of 1N2D? how long is there honeymoon in Bali?

  42. 42 K

    They look so great together! I was wondering will you be posting more photos of the ceremony and who attended? I saw some on www. allkpop. com /2013/01/uhm-tae-woong-and-yoon-hye-jin-get-married and he looks so happy and cheesy! I’d love to see more.

  43. 43 whitethorns

    If Uhm TaeWoong was an idol, most people would be sad to see him get hitch.
    But everyone here are just so happy he’s married already. I was kinda worried that he’d remain single all his life and follow his noona’s footsteps since he dont seem to have a girlfriend based on his “lonely heart bachelor persona” in 1N2D.

  44. 44 dindin

    Congratulations to one of my favorite actors in Korea πŸ™‚ Uhm Tae Wong !!! Have a Joyful and Blessed Marriage !!!

  45. 45 hide

    Sweet !!! :-d Uhm Tae Woong looks so happy πŸ™‚ Congratulations and Best Wishes !!!

  46. 46 Kstylick

    My heart-felt congratulations to them. May they have a lovely married life.

  47. 47 BattleAngel

    Thank you for posting these lovely pictures! They both look so in love & happy! Congratulations to Uhm Tae-woong! I love him and I’m glad he found someone that special someone! Can’t wait to see baby pics next!

    • 47.1 BattleAngel

      And I know it’s a rival program but now I am just waiting for Kim Jong Kook to get hitched! I’m holding my breath and praying he’ll marry someone he loves. Once he does then I’ll be a happy woman.

      Uhm Tae-Woong and Kim Jong Kook are the only two celebrity crushes that I have that I couldn’t wait for them to find “the one” and get married and live happily ever after! They are such great guys they deserve their happily ever after..One down…one more to go! Go KJK!!

  48. 48 Cecellia

    last picture is gorgeous!
    shes so pretty <3 <3
    happy for the couple xD

  49. 49 aenea

    I squealed in glee at 2 in the morning when I saw the pictures. Their happiness is so contagious.

    Congratulations to the groom. Best wishes to the bride.


    • 49.1 kesha_joi

      When I saw the headline, I literally jumped for joy, so happy for UTW!!!

  50. 50 mary

    Once that baby pops out it’s going to be a My Baby Is Better Than Your Baby contest in 1n2d. πŸ™‚

    So happy for UTW. (Byun ahjusshi from Chun Hyang will forever be cool and single for me!)

    • 50.1 mary

      And Han Chae Young attended UTW’s wedding! πŸ™‚ so glad to know they’re still friends! Kyaaaaaa~
